Hotel Palazzo Salis in Soglio
The House - guided tour
The history of Palazzo Salis in Soglio starts in 1630 with the construction by knight Baptista von Salis. His descendants expanded the „Casa Battista“ 1701 into the stately home which still stands today in the middle of the tranquil mountain village. In 1797, as Napoleon separated the Valtelline and Chiavenna from the Grisons free state, many possessions of the family were lost and the family’s revenues from services in foreign armies dried up. Therefore the Salis were forced to enter new careers and eventually left Soglio. However, until today the house still belongs to the Salis family. In 1876 the mansion and its original furnishing became an inn. Preserved carefully over the years, the Palazzo Salis was awarded the title of „Historic Hotel of the Year“ by ICOMOS in 1998 and since 2004 is one of the founding members of Swiss Historic Hotels.
